Not convinced that will work unless you know the format of the disk in your recorder. On my recorder, for instance the file system is EXT3. Many video recorders use Linux as the host OS and they tend to use EXT2, 3 or 4 for their file systems. That means that you'll need special software on your Mac to be able to read the disk at all! I used extFS from Paragon Software to handle this, but to be honest it was more flakey than paid-for software ought to be.

Executive summary: what you want to do is quite difficult.
